Hey Year 6!
This is my last and final message to you all. What a year it has been. We've laughed, we've cried, but we've all made it to the end! I can honestly say what a joy and a privilege it has been to teach you these last 7 weeks. I felt like I have got to know you all a little better and hopefully given you some wonderful memories to leave primary school with. I hope you will come back and visit us in September when you are all looking smart in your new uniforms.
Have a wonderful and relaxing summer.
Best of luck!
Lots of love
Completely free for all children and families, the extraordinary collection of short stories, poems, essays and pictures has contributions from more than 110 children’s writers and illustrators, including Lauren Child, Anthony Horowitz, Greg James and Chris Smith, Michael Morpurgo, Liz Pichon, Axel Scheffler, Francesca Simon and Jacqueline Wilson.
The collection, published by Bloomsbury, is dedicated to the doctors, nurses, carers, porters, cleaners and everyone currently working in hospitals.
In accordance with the latest government advice, we have had to close the school until further notice. Of course, this is not ideal but with your help, we will endeavour to keep your child’s learning moving forward during this unprecedented situation. On a weekly basis I will post work for all the children to complete. Please check the page regularly.
If you would like to send me any learning electronically such as a word document, a photo of something you have created or a video you have made, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org I would really love to see what you have been doing! Also, if you need any help, please let me know.
We are delighted to inform you that in addition to the work we are setting your child on our class page there are now two professional online e-learning platforms that have been especially developed for the Lockdown period. The Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons both have lots of videos and interactive learning possibilities which we recommend you use to enhance your child’s home learning from now until we return to school. They both have daily lessons with lots of videos, quizzes etc. and should be more interactive than what we have been able to provide so far.
